Two California-based Marines are under investigation for allegedly threatening an Orlando-style attack on gay bars.

"Coming to a gay bar near you," the Snapchat picture caption reads. It shows an unidentified Marine holding a rifle with his finger on the trigger.

The snap was posted on a private Camp Mendleton forum on Facebook, which has more than 25,000 members.

It's since been removed, but the Marine Corp isn't taking this lightly.

The First Marine Expeditionary Force has launched an investigation after the photo surfaced, and has identified the person who posted it.

On the heels of Sunday's terror attack on a gay nightclub in Orlando, this is not something you'd want to see from those who are expected to serve and protect all Americans, whether they are gay or straight.
